It has been discovered that there is a gene that is responsible for alopecia. Unfortunately, little more is known than that, so there still isn’t a cure for it. More and more people are feeling the affects of this condition and it doesn’t matter what sex the sufferer is. The number of products and the amount of money spent each year continues to rise. Sadly, this is wasted on products that mostly do not work, make matters worse, or cause other issues. That’s why many people are turning back to ancient Eastern medical practices.
